HC Deb 04 May 1937 vol 323 c955
59. Mr. Davidson

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether any steps have been taken to ensure that Glasgow unemployed men and women will be given preference, where possible, of employment at the Empire exhibition in Bella-houston Park, Glasgow?

Mr. Elliot

I am informed that the 12 contracts which have so far been placed have been given to Glasgow firms, and that the contractors have been specially; requested to make use of the local Employment Exchanges in engaging labour. In order to facilitate the engagement of labour an Employment Exchange has been set up at the exhibition site.
